PLACERVILLE: Three-Vehicle Traffic Collision on SR-50 Highway

Posted on Friday, July 12th, 2013 at 3:50 pm    

PLACERVILLE, California (July 12, 2013) – There was a three-vehicle traffic accident late Friday afternoon on the eastbound side of State Route 50, just east of Eight Mile Road off-ramp,  according to a dispatch report filed by the California Highway Patrol.

Just after 3:30 p.m., CHP officers received several 911 calls informing them of a collision between a silver VW Bug and two other unknown vehicles.

Reporting witnesses said the driver of the VW Bug was trapped in the vehicle.

Emergency officials arrived on scene and treated several people with minor injuries. In addition, paramedics transported the driver of the VW Bug to a nearby hospital with unknown injuries.

The accident is under investigation by the California Highway Patrol.

“If you are in a traffic accident, whether major or minor, it is important to see a doctor,” said Attorney West Seegmiller of Seegmiler Law Firm. “Often times you may walk away from the accident seemingly unharmed, but days later start to really feel the effects. It is important to get checked out.”
